One Night Before Christmas by Susan Carlisle ~ A Highly Recommended Read


One Night Before Christmas


Unwrapping Dr Reynolds…
Sports physician Dr Melanie Hyde is used to being treated as one of the guys — but just sometimes, it would be nice to be treated like a woman…
So when hot-shot orthopaedic doctor Dalton Reynolds flies in to Niagara Falls, his brooding good looks ignite feelings Mel never even knew existed!
Dalton’s flight leaves in a few days yet after their short, but steamy, time together, Mel knows that she’s already fallen for him!  Can she melt Dalton’s heart and convince him to stay…just in time for Christmas?

~Rae's Review~
This is my first read from the Harlequin Medical Romance line and it was an awesome one! I've been looking for books I like to call 'Harlequin in a Book' and this definitely qualified. I kept thinking of Hallmark Hero mainstay Antonio Cupo as Dalton. Yum. 
The thing I loved about this book is not just a romance but also a story about famlial relations and football. I loved how Ms. Carlisle handled the tension between Mel and her father when Dalton eventually brought up. I was hoping it was  loose end she would deal with and she tied everything up so wonderfully. I also love the fact that Mel and Dalton weren't hot for each other the second they laid eyes on one another. It started out as enemies which soon turned to friendship and then romance. Mel took her time and didn't let Dalton use her. She had pride in herself and didn't move unless she knew there were feelings there. Well done! This is going on my keeper shelf as I'm definitely giving this one a re-read in the future!
Highly recommended read!

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R



Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
